The ocean of life offers us many challenges. Challenges look big when we think they are difficult. Anything that looks difficult grows a negative thought in our mind which makes the challenge more difficult. Also, this induction of negativity makes us feel low and depressed. In order to overcome such situations one has to stay calm and quiet with a clear mind. The meditations taught by the Art of Living foundation (started by H H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) have given me the clarity of mind and the ability to be in the present moment. As a result, whenever life is hit by challenges, I see them as opportunities and deal with them with a positive outlook. Sometimes, I imagine myself like an earthworm being given the ability to go faster and change the trend.
